When to travel

Hi,

I know it exists, I've seen it before, but can't find it back! I guess most of you know that feeling, so maybe somebody can help me out of my misery.

I am looking for an overview map or calendar on when to travel to what countries. I once saw a nice overview of all countries in a calender stating when to go/not to go. Considering rainy seasons, holidays, etc etc..

Anybody has a map like this? Or maybe some resources so I can reconstruct a map like this?

I am specificly interested in the weather (rainy seasons, temperatures) for Africa and Asia.

Thanks!

Fred

Is there something like this available for other countries? I'm going to start my own if I can't find one on-line somewhere...

There is nothing like that anywhere else that I know of.

It IS on my list of things to do, so if anyone wants to continue with a spreadsheet for other continents I'll be very happy to add it to HU. Once we have the initial data in a spreadsheet I can create a database application in our new system (coming soon!) that will allow updating and adding to.

Kevin, or anyone else, Email me if you're interested in helping out!

Grant, I'm working on a way to get the data for about 12,000 points worldwide. I'll keep you posted.
